Default First Strike - a nuclear war RTS


Youtube link | Pop Up


Its a ten minute, fast paced RTS about nuclear war where you control one of 11 of earths superpowers. The whole game is designed to be played just through Gstures and 3D Menus on selected nations.

We've just released our reveal Trailer today. The game is gonna release in March, one week prior to GDC, where we will have a booth in the GDC Play Area.

Default Beta and Universal?

Will there be a beta test? Will it also be universal meaning it can run on IPhones, IPods and IPads?

Is the gameplay on a countdown timer for ten minutes? Or is that an average play time?

The game looks fantastic, and the visuals are stellar. Can't wait to try it out!

@ SirHanet: No, we'll have no public beta sadly. Also the game requires a lot of space on the screen, which is why it will be tablets (iOS, Android and maybe Windows App) only. It runs fine, but tactically selecting nations while retaining an overview is a real hassle on the small screen.

@ JCho133: Thank you very much. 10 Minutes is just the average playtime. Its heavily dependent on the number of CPU enemies and your selected Superpower.

It looks amazing! Well done.

We'll have a stand at the GDC Play Area as well. I definitely come by yours

@Slem: Oh, awesome, what will your presented game be?

@Echoen: Yes, it will work on an iPad 2, the iPad 1 has memory issues, but the 2 handles it fine, last I recall.
